My personal goal is to write a paper and give a presentation at this
conference about this project. Does anyone want to help me do so? I
wonder if they offset costs of travel for the conference.

I originally wanted to submit a paper about Inkscape, but I think it
might be more interesting to submit a presentation of this project which
I believe might impact SVG's usage and adoption quicker.

Anyone want to help and get a trip to Japan?
